Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THt IETHBRID6B HIMilD Saturday, Cable operators must pay TV stations for programs OTTAWA (CP1 'flic Cana- dian Radio-Television Commis- sion announced Friday that cable television operators will have to pay for Canadian televi- sion programs carried on their system. This was offered by the com- mission in a policy statement as one solution to what it has said is a threat to the survival of Ca- nadian broadcasting. The CRTC has said that if cable is allowed to grow as it has, the existence of Canadian television is endangered. The regulatory agency also of- fered other safeguards for local Canadian television stations in- cluding deletion of certain pro- grams and commercials of dis- tant television stations earned on cable. In addition, the commission SOVIET SCOUTS Young Russia on (he march, a de- tachment of Young Pioneers, the Soviet equivalent of Boy and Girl Scouts, lines up for a drill session at a Moscow school.

Cardinal resigns WASHINGTON (AP) Pat- rick Cardinal O'Boyle, who will be 75 Sunday, has submitted his resignation to Pope Paul. Cardi- nal O'Boyle, who is in his 24th year as spiritual head of Roman Catholics in the Wash- ington Archdiocese, stirred deep church controversy in 1968 when he imposed stiff punishment on 39 priests who refused to accept Pope Paul's anti-birth-control encyclical. Unusual arrest, EDMONTON (Cri Con- stable R. .7. Schuster picked up a break-and-enter suspect, early today but not in the usual manner. The constable was driving along Fort Road when he received word of a break-in in the area. He noticed a man and when he slowed his car, the man put out his thumb. The constable stopped, the hitch-hiker -jumped in, the po- liceman locked the door and drove to the police station. Tlie suspect has been charged with breaking and entering with intent. recommended changes in fed eral income tax law that would forbid Canadian companies winch buy advertising on U.S. television stations to write off the cost as a business expense. LOSE INCOME These steps are designed to bolster the television industry, which has complained that U.S. stations carried on cable sys- tems have made Canadian TV stations less attractive to adver- tisers and have threatened their income. The commission document does not spell out whether there would be increased rales for cable subscribers as a result of additional payments to televi- sion broadcasters. But Pierre Juneau, CRTC chairman, told a news confer- ence that if the cable systems increase their services under the new policy they might apply for rate increases. The commission estimates that revenue to the television in- dustry from cable payments could amount to about ?2 mil- lion annually. The commission suggests that a payments system could be worked out based on the cable system gross revenue per mile of cable. Minister fined for littering VIRGIN'A BEACH, Va. (AP) A Baptist minister was con- victed yesterday of violating Virginia Beach's anti-littering ordinance by distributing reli- gious handbills on the streets. Rev. George T. Stallings, pastor of First Colonial Baptist church, was fined and costs in mu- nicipal court. He had been ar- rested July 6 on complaint of a passer-by who was handed one of the handbills. TRAINS DRIVERS Kentucky has started a pro- gram to train ambulance drivers in all aspects of emer- gency medical care. 11 would depend on each sys- tem's financial ability to pay. The commission suggests that a final payment policy could be worked out after discussion with broadcasters and cable repre- sentatives. CABLE SHOULD PAY The commission says it is tak- ing tliis stand because cable should pay for what it programs of regular TV stations which ;t picks out of the air and delivers to customers. The CRTC laid down a list of priorities which the cable sys- tems are to observe. The CHTC says the cable op- erators must carry local televi- sion stations first, then regional Canadian stations of different network and distant stations not affiliated to the same Cnadian network as a local or regional station. The announcement places no definite limit in the number of American stations that may be carried providing that other priorities are met. Before the U.S. stations can be carried the system cable system must pro- vide educational TV channels if requested by provincial authori- ties and community program- ming channels. The commission does say that cable systems are limited to carrying three U.S. stations by microwave relay. That refers to U.S. stations which cannot be receved directly out of the air. CAN CUT PROGRAMS The policy provides for dele- tion of certain cable programs if requested by a local station already serving the community. if a program is scheduled at the same time on a distant sta- tion as the identical program on a local station, the local station may require the cable system to delete the distant program. The Canadian television sta- tion may also negotiate with a cable system for removal of commercials on American tele- vision station programs carried on the cable system. The TV station could (hen replace these commercials with its own ad- vertisements. The commission also strongly recommended that the Cana- dian Film Development Corp., a federal agency, could extend its support of film production to In- clude television programs. The commission said it Is im- portant that a Canadian pro- gram production industry strongly supported. In other points, the commis- sion said: systems In bilingual regions will be encouraged to carry community programs originated on cable in both offi- cial languages.
